The morning after

Posted: 11/25/2012 9:31 AM

The morning after 


As I was watching the Bucket yesterday I was oddly not into it very much. This can be attributed to the last twenty years of Indiana football and the fact that all Bucket games are being played for pride, nothing else. That's right, pride, no bowl game, no winning season, nothing, just pride and that gets old.

What do I want as a paying fan, spending tons of money traveling to and from games...mostly losses. I want a Bucket game that means something, I want a Bucket game that sees IU playing for the Roses, not some empty ass pride thing. I want the Bucket game to represent a true rivalry game again, that can't be said when they beat you 80 percent of the time. I saw two mediocre teams yesterday, almost like watching two washed up prize fighters.

I want Kevin Wilson to own up to defense and the fact you MUST play good defense to win ballgames. These last three Big Ten games have been atrocious, noway Eckler and Mallory should continue in their high paid positions. As someone OTOB said, even a MAC level defense would not give up the points and yards we've seen IU's defense give up. If that's not an indictment on the dcord. than nothing will ever be their fault. I also want a fan base that demands a winner, not proclaim victory because our record's improved...that's a loser mentality if there ever was one.

When traditional dormats such as Northwestern, Kansas State, Vanderbilt and others are flourishing, what's IU's excuse?

waylonjennings completely right....Wilson only there for two years but who is responsible for the twenty years before him and the fifty years are so before that or longer? I'd say the IU administrations...board of trustees...AD's that have made so many "awful" hires in general. Most loses in the history of BCS FB teams...what a title!!

I think Wilson is a good coach, I'm always impressed when he speaks and get the O going first, get some excitement and some fans, then get the D up to par and it looks like he's doing that, the O is not bad.

Frustrating as it was, I think it appropriate to remember that the defense was on the field for almost 14 minutes in the first quarter due to a couple of ineffective three and outs by the offense, something common this season and I think one of the more subtle impacts of the loss of Tre. I think that Coffman did as well as could have been hoped, but perhaps understandably often seemed to be slow to read situations and often a half-second slow to deliver the ball off a set play. It seemed to me that some of his most effective play came when he was flushed and he and the pertinent receiver free-lanced a completion.

I kind of felt bad for Greg Heban.  He got manhandled all game.
